Think small. Now go smaller. Go so miniscule that you cannot help but succeed and then you have success to build on. It’s a simple idea that I’m going to show you works, or prove that it can’t.
I’m going to write a short blog each day for the next week. It might be a picture and a sentence, but it will be up and it will be on facebook.
I’ve realized that what I’m capable of is not a good measure of what I should be doing. What I’ll actually finish is what I should be doing. I’m not only a blog writer who hasn’t put up a blog in a very long time. I’m a homeschooling mom with a full time job as a therapist dealing with cases other therapists cringe at. I’m married to a general contractor who doesn’t want to finish our remodel and I have a new side hobby waiting for the police to show up at my house so I can report the latest petty theft from the store of construction items in the backyard.
Obviously my life is not conducive to long afternoons spent at my keyboard with a nice cup of coffee and a cookie. For success to happen, it needs to get squeezed into small spaces and flourish like it was a weed.
- Make success almost impossible NOT to achieve
- Start so small you can’t help but win
- Be realistic about your time; if you don’t have it now, it’s not magically appearing cause you want it to.
- Small successes can be the foundation for larger success.
